[audio]The First Apologia - St. Justin Martyr
"Apologia" means "explanation". In this case, a Greek philosopher who converted to Christianity attempts to explain to Emperor Marcus Aurelius why Christianity is a good thing; or failing that, what Christians believe and do as opposed to what is rumored; and why it was bad for the Empire to persecute Christians just for holding Christian beliefs. The apologia is circa 147-161 A.D. If you're interested at all in history, politics, or religion, this is like a trip in a time machine.

[audio]IUMA: NonFiction the Original
Non-Fiction's got something to say. Only you may miss is, getting caught up in the stuttery bounce of their phrasing or the soulful groove of the bass undercurrent in "B.Y.B.D." Serving up hot rhymes with tongue-flippin' precision, the dynamic duo's colorful verses sport a playful intellectualism with a touch of Andre & Big Boi Southern-style sass. The MC's messages are plentiful, but their lyrics roll out in an abstract, alliteration-stuffed poetry style that makes an ear-catching cover to the ...

[audio]A Declaration of the Delegates of Maryland - Charles Carroll and the Delegates of Maryland
On July 6, 1776, before the Declaration of Independence had been ratified by the conventions of the colonies, Maryland declared itself independent in these words. Drafted by Charles Carroll of Carrollton, the only Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence, this moving declaration displays a subtly different understanding of the grievances and rights of the people of the colonies. (Though the complaints about being treated like slaves sound ironic to modern ears.)

[audio]Letter to Diognetus - Mathetes
The earliest known piece of Christian apologetics, famous for its beautiful description of the relationship of Christians with the world. "Mathetes" is probably a pseudonym; it just means 'disciple'. The writer is a bit odd, as he uses arguments from the Old Testament against Greek idolatry, and then criticizes Jewish customs as if he discounted the Old Testament's inspiration. He also exhibits a touch of Greek or Manichaean distrust of the material body...

[audio]Letters from a Friendship: Ambrose and Sabinus - St. Ambrose of Milan
Letters from St. Ambrose, Bishop of Milan, to St. Sabinus, Bishop of Placentia (Piacenza). The letters speak of Paradise, book editing, bad handwriting, good doctrine, and long distance friendship. Ambrose signs off with variations on his usual farewell to friends and family: "Love me, for I love you." Ambrosius, governor of Milan, was elected bishop by acclamation of the people. He lost his civil office, was baptized, received his first communion and holy orders, and was consecrated bishop, all...

[audio]"Sermon 12: On the Fast of the Tenth Month" - St. Leo the Great, Pope
This is not so much a sermon on Advent or December, as the old fast of the "Ember Days" that used to be celebrated four times a year. (Zacharias 8:19: "Thus saith the Lord of hosts: The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and great solemnities.") The December ones always fell during Advent, of course, thus contributing to the penitential and preparatory nature of the season...

[audio]On Holy Images - St. John of Damascus
A treatise on the validity of using images as an aid to worship by St. John of Damascus (aka St. John Damascene), written while he lived under the second generation of Muslim rule in Syria. But it was also aimed at the Iconoclasts (image-breakers) who controlled the Christian Byzantine Empire at the time, and were not above killing artists. St. John not only points out that icons support the doctrine of the Incarnation -- since God made flesh becomes visible and drawable -- but also that the wri...

[audio]The Life of St. Macrina - St. Gregory of Nyssa
A short biography of St. Macrina by her brother, St. Gregory of Nyssa. She was born about AD 330, and died in 379. Hugely intelligent, wise, and holy even by the standards of a family full of saints and theologians, St. Macrina the Younger is a fascinating figure.
